Bridging the Gap’s Host Homes Program

Process & Outcomes Evaluation

The Host Homes model is an alternative to shelters and transitional housing services for young people at-risk of becoming homeless. It is an example of place-based youth homelessness prevention, meaning that the program is located in the young person’s own community. Bridging the Gap is the first program to operate under the Host Homes model in Ontario and has been in existence for 10 years. The program is located in Halton Region and predominately works with young people at-risk of homelessness in smaller communities (i.e., Oakville, Georgetown, Milton, Acton). The program serves young people ages 16-24 who are considered to be low risk.
